Friday morning




You should see a man's face and also a word.... Hint: Try tilting your head to the right, the world begins with 'L'.



todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I have been willing to do whatever it takes to remain sober

to hear honesty from a newcomer

that I've never "fired" a sponsee (I don't care for that term); they have always fired themselves when I just give them the chance

that I'm willing to help someone as long as they are willing to try to help themselves


The only way on earth to multiply happiness is to divide it.

If you've never fired a sponsor - I say "keep coming back!"

I dont like the term fired either, but I have stopped withing with people both sponsors and sponsees. I have stopped working with a sponsor when I moved, when one got drunk, when one stopped going to meetings and when I wanted to do more step work and they didnt. I stopped working with sponsees when they are not ready to do this thing, and leave the door open...

i've never fired anyone either and don't like that term. i firmly believe god puts people in our lives for a reason and it isn't up to me whether or not i keep them, or if they stay sober.

(except for scott, i'm keeping him.)

daave, remember when you were my sponsor?! =) i was crazy back then and probably said some pretty crazy stuff. i remember you told me to always look at the person speaking during the meeting and i still do that.

I like what you said that you are willing to help others as long as they are willing to help themselves.
